It's funny 'cuz I could totally see this happening

I've been waiting for this whole Jussie Smollett thing to be made official before I even thought of weighing in on it (although it now appears dude done fucked up) but this was too funny not to pass on. From The Babylon Bee (which is pretty much The Onion for conservatives):

My favorite part of the article:

"Smollett has exactly the kind of skills we look for at our fine organization," said CNN correspondent Brian Stelter. "He picked a narrative, made up all the relevant facts and details, and stuck with his story in spite of glaring holes in the plot. It's hard to find people who understand our core values here at CNN, but Smollett seems to be just the guy for us."

The craziest part? No one is going to learn a damn thing from this. That much I've figured out so far.

Updated 2/20/19: Looks like Snopes felt the need to "fact check" The Babylon Bee story. Too funny.
